What is said in France Cass Agnace stalk and the Princess Napoleon. Poetry about Beatrice tar. Russell in London Telegraph Marit Burg june 14.�?the Prince Imperial killed by zulus is it possible no one will believe it. And yet As you have Long ago heard it a True. The Prince it will be remembered went out not Many Days ago with a party who were surprised by an unexpectedly Large body zulus. They hoped to meet a a dozen so a but found themselves a sudden confronted by seventy. It was the old Story Zulu stealth Zulu caution and Zulu courage. The Prince rushed at the enemy sword in hand said one the party but fortunately the zulus fled. The tragedy the Princess death was Only postponed. One More experience was to be thrown away. A court inquiry is now sitting and before that court lieutenant Carey will have to make it Clear that he acted for the Best Aud to the Best his Power. Of that officers courage no one has a suspicion his judgment Trio to May be two opinions. But the escort the Prince panic stricken and startled into forgetfiulne88 their charge Are somewhat unfairly conspicuous from the Accident having been the escort. The real blame lies further Back and those who allowed the Prince to go out with an insufficient and useless guard must answer to the nation for the Princess Beatty. Of the morning the disaster lord Chelmsford asked for Tho Prince. A where is lie a and the rep 15 was a the is with Cobiel this satisfied lord Chelmsford for next to Lii self colonel Harrison might be considered to have had charge Sfa the Chelmsford therefore has to explain whether he knew the Prince was leaving Camp without a proper escort and Why he allowed it. Colonel Harmon also Lias to explain Imp it was that the Prince went out so inadequately attended a nil whether in any special degree it devolved upon himself to Mako arrangements for the safety lord Chelmsford a guest. Of his solicitude for Tho Prince there is Only one opinion and the Prince were alive he would gratefully acknowledge it. To return to the Ilu fated Prince. Was it not strange that his horse should have keen named Fate the Napoleons have always needed to be careful omens and it was a sinister name indeed Kismet More strange however is the fact that the Prince should have lost his life sunni Only speaking from lira inability to do that in which lie specially excelled mounting his horse without assistance from stirrups. And again apart from the horror Tho event is it possible not to be struck with the awful jesting a destiny that should Send Napoleons son into combat with zulus armed with the sword Murat. It has been elated that the sword belonged to the first Napoleon Hilt sir Henry Bulwer is my authority for say ing in was that the famous Leader cavalry. When the Prince was in Marit Burg the sword came one Day under notice and he told his excellency that it had belonged to Murat. The locket round his neck did however once belong to the first Napoleon. I saw the Prince the last morning his life and he asked me As be always did when i saw him a what news the afghan War a i said i had none and lie remarked a when it docs come it is sure to be Good news Fiose Hill men seem to like lighting but done to seem to Kivow How to do As lie went away towards his own tent to mount for Liis last ride he stopped at an in trill. The african ant builds a Domo As solid As if made Portland Cement and Tho Prince said a i wonder what the ants think All this a and began with his foot to try and Kielc a piece the outer crust. A i shall get the worst this a lie said after a few laughing efforts Aud went o4i, Riding alas to his death. Or Forbes in daily news j headquarter Camp rive it june 8. A our position Here is within sight and Elose by the spot whore Prince Louis Napoleon was killed. Since the discovery his body that the Black interpreter has been found about three quarters a mile from the place the first quack. He had run thus far and clearly made a fight before death. All four his Assegai Lay broken and bloody about him. Statements Are being called for from All who bad any official cognizance the sequence untoward errors omission and commission that contributed to Liis sad Fate. Of course a everybody lays the Burden the responsibility somebody else till the re Ducio and Abs drum conies about that nobody is responsible at All except perhaps Tho hapless dead youth himself. I do not quite understand How in lord a command it is always dead men who Are made responsible for catastrophes. It would be labor lost and time wasted to detail at length the statements colonel Harrison and lieutenant Carey. Those Are Tho subordinates who no doubt have to Weir own portion responsibility to Bear with what Success they May hut beyond the faintest doubt a crushing weight responsibility for this calamity must fall lord Chelmsford. Prince Louis Napoleon is sent out to be attached to lord Chelmsford s staff. Even without the special injunctions that accompanied him and these were the greatest weight and the loftiest origin the Prince was hardly to be regarded in the Light an Ordinary Galloper. That his and vent gave additional embarrassment to a Man already staggering under the responsibility his position is not difficult to believe but the lieutenant general accepted the draft and it was incumbent Jim to Honor it. How did lord Chelmsford Honor it by permitting him to join Resonno Issace after Reelou nuisance every Participator in which took his life in his hands. The risks actual Battle it behoves every Man belonging to an Arnty in the Field to Tak Euls chances irrespective external considerations Bojt Petty re Connor Ustance raids Are wholly another character. On hearing the lads impetuous recklessness a service from which it was lord Chelmsford a duty to have prohibited him that general gave instructions that he should make no More such exhibitions without adequate escort. But the fatal looseness that pervades arrangements in his lordships Headquarters nullified an instruction which in the circumstances was in itself indefinite and insufficient to meet Tho Case. Lord Chelmsford is eager with the negative intimation that he did not know How the poor Prince had gone out at All. It would seem Holt onside a this fact exculpate him. To my thinking it is the very essence Bis blame worthiness. It was lord Chelmsford a duty effectually to provide against the exposure the Prince to undo Aud Wanton a Juk. Lord Chelmsford failed As the re sults and his own statement alike demonstrate to make such effectual provision. Therefore lord Chelmsford stands burdened with the primary responsibility for the catastrophe. In details the responsibility seems shared by colonel Harrison and lieutenant Carey. The former yielded to the Princess pleading for work in the Saddle after distasteful work at Tho desk. He gladly accepted lieutenant Carey a offer to accompany the Prince having indeed intended to ask him if he had not volunteered Aud in expressed his Contentment mind now that the Prince was in lieutenant Carey a charge. The cavalry brigade major was required to detail an escort to consist six men Bettington a horse and six in autos. The brigade major offered lieutenant cd Arey who came to him for an escort the alternative sending for and parading the same handing lieutenant Carey a service order for the sane and letting him procure an escort himself from the command officers. Lieutenant Carey chose the latter time being an object and Bettington a and Shep a tone a people lying in his Way. Lieutenant Carey obtained six White men from Bettington one whom he dispatched to shepstone for the Bastos. This Man overtook lieutenant Carey the Prince and five comrades who Ere this had started a tech
